What gives us the right to treat animals so badly?

Animals around the world are desperate. It’s time to end this madness.

Elephants are being stolen from their mothers and forced to entertain tourists.

Chickens and pigs are suffering under intense, confined conditions to become fast food.

Dogs are being needlessly culled in their millions because of our fear of rabies.

Does the life of an animal mean nothing at all?

Together, we can end animal cruelty

Animals cannot tell their stories of suffering. Together, we must be their voice.

We can end this by loudly calling out cruelty, and influencing governments and businesses to change their practices.

Together, we can give all animals a life worth living.

We are World Animal Protection. We exist to end animal cruelty. But we can’t do it alone.

Our organisation has been protecting animals more than 50 years.

We move governments, global companies, organisations and people to use their power to end animal cruelty.

558,000 of you moved TripAdvisor and more than 200 other travel companies to end their promotion of cruel elephant attractions.

513,000 of you moved KFC to improve chicken welfare.

188,000 of you moved Turkish Airlines to stop transporting African grey parrots out of the Congo.

Without passionate changemakers like you, our incredible achievements for animals would be impossible.
